This afternoon I’m coming at you with a super simple, but eye catching OOTD! Paired with some accessories this is a fantastic ‘grungey’ outfit to wear when it’s not too chilly, you could always add a bomber jacket if it does get too chilly! I kept my shoes slightly dirty on the white front parts for that added grungey look, which I’m kinda liking at the moment! Yes – I created the t-shirt all by myself! The top itself is originally just a plain black one from Primark, but I have attacked it – I’m going to make a tutorial very soon on here and YouTube showing how I created it. So stay tuned for that!
I thought because Vlogoween is fast approaching I’d check in with you all to say hello and let you know what I’m up to in preparation for the huge experience that’ll be: Vlogoween. Currently I’ve just been refurbing my YouTube channel with some new bits to help you find the right video.
As you can see, I’ve added some playlists that’ll grow over time on the home page of my channel currently I’ve only got two: ‘Phobia Series’ and ‘Special Effects/Prosthetics’ and I’ll keep adding to these videos as an when they’re uploaded. Keep an eye out though as they’ll be plenty more playlists added soon!
Secondly, I’ve invested some money into a programme called ‘Motion’ it’s available from the Mac App Store, and it’s going to enable me to create some modified bits and pieces rather than just the basic effects, text and transitions that Final Cut Pro X has to offer. Although I love Final Cut Pro, I feel that Motion will allow me to really improve my video intro’s and this means they’ll be more theatrical and hopefully more scary! I’m going to create another Vlogoween trailer with this programme once I’ve got to grips with it so you can get more of an idea of what to expect from my videos in the future.
I knew I’d end up leaving tutorial filming to last minute again! But fear not I’ve got a full two weeks of work coming up in which I’ll be spending that time editing these videos to perfection, currently I’ve got the follow tutorials filmed:
Adele Inspired ‘Drag’
Phantom of the Opera: Christine
Trixie the Clown
Serial Killer: Dolly
But I’m planning on doing AT LEAST THREE or FOUR more tutorials, I want to try and cram as many tutorials into this Halloween series as possible because I really love Halloween and it’s the time of the year I’m most inspired. I hope your all keeping well and am as excited about Vlogoween as I am!
When I started out as a makeup artist, I saw so many people on YouTube raving about this product and I was itching to try it. So when I had the chance to buy it from Charles Fox in London, I jumped at the chance. This palette retails at around £50 depending on where you get it and it includes 24 colours. There is also the option to buy this product with just 12 colours in too.
This is my palette, excuse that it’s not very tidy, but I’ve been using it lots lately. I did lots of research on different ways to use this palette and I wanted to try lots out before reviewing it. I’ve done a SFX look with this which simulated deep cuts using just this paint, using the white and black to highlight and contour. It worked amazingly for this and instantly fell in love with it. I’ve also used this palette in theatre, for live close up work and some film work.
The colour pay off from this palette is amazing (as you can see from the swatches above) and it can be blended out really nicely, they can be made very subtle or very bright. I really like using the bright colours for clown looks because of the way they pop. The only thing that can annoys me about the palette is that it can smudge really easily and will definitely need setting with a makeup setting spray or a translucent powder. I definitely think this palette is worth a try though and it has many different uses.
This concludes my first post on here. I hope you enjoyed reading 🙂
